It’s May, which means it is ALMOST summertime (I see you taunting me, freshly filled pool) and summertime means: POPSICLES. And because popsicles aren’t just for the kiddos, I present to you FROSÉPOPS.
Yes, friends, you read that correctly: boozey popsicles because sometimes the sickly sweet popsicles found in the freezer aisle just won’t cut it. Added bonus to homemade pops: no startling blue tongues.
Rosé starts showing up in the stores about this time of year in beautifully styled displays and you can’t, no matter what you do, help but be drawn into the varying shades of pink glittering at you from behind various shaped bottles. Or maybe that’s just me that has this problem. And have you seen the rosé in cans? HOLY BEST PICNIC DRINKS, BATMAN.
Boozy pops not your thing? You can make these EPIC Butterscotch Pudding Pops and be reminded what it is to be a kid again.
SIDEBAR: TIMELESS WAS CANCELLED AND THEN IT GOT RENEWED AND I HAVE FEELS AND OMG WYATT, RUFUS, AND LUCY ARE COMING BACK. Ahem. Sorry. Like I said: FEELS. Please tell me you watched this GLORIOUS show? If not GET ON IT – find thyself a device and get to streaming. I need all of you to be caught up so when Season Two (OMG, WE GET A SEASON TWO) airs, we can discuss it. I mean: I have QUESTIONS. Mainly … can RUFUS see the future / past or is he SHIFTING through time? Did the TimeTeam break the timeline? I. NEED. ANSWERS.
8 ounces, strawberries
6 oz raspberries
¼ cup water
2 TBSP lemon juice
1 cup rosé
In a small sauce pan make a simple syrup by combining the water, sugar, and lemon juice. Cook the mixture for 3-5 minutes, or until sugar has completely dissolved (I usually yank mine off the stove just as it starts to boil).
In a food processor pulse the strawberries and raspberries until smooth (though, tbh, I left mine a bit chunky because texture yo).
In a bowl combine simple syrup, berry mixture, and wine.
Pour into popsicle molds.
To remove from molds run some slightly warmer than room temperature water and wiggle / slide until the pop out.
Will you be giving these FroséPops a try? What is your favorite summertime, cold and sweet treat?0
